Doctor Answers 2
Lasik or lasek for dry eyes and high Rx
you have 2 reasons to get LASEK not LASIK:
1) dry eyes and
you get LASIK you will have eyes that are MORE DRY and it is possible you can't get the entire Rx fixedso just go to a surgeon who learned the more advanced noncutting LASEK technique, then you can get the entire Rx treated so you're Rx is 0 and vision 20/20, without dry eyes!:)
